Now, that it has been a couple of months since I have completed my Yoga Teacher Training I decided to share some of my experiences. The two and a half weeks I spend in Costa Rica were intense physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The jungle was a fascinating place with a family of monkeys living in our proximity and making five am wake-up calls every morning. The sloths hanging, chilling from the trees, the beautiful greenery with most gorgeous flowers and exotic birds everywhere taking your breath away.
One of my main concerns going on this journey was the diet during the training. It was to be all vegetarian Ayurvedic cuisine and being a meat lover I was very nervous. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not miss meat at all and really enjoyed the food our chef prepared for us. It was utterly delicious and motivated me to reduce my meat intake.
Daily, we practiced yoga, learned anatomy, discussed yoga philosophy, workshoped poses, meditated, chanted, danced together and became friends. We completed enlightening exercises on letting go and experienced how intimate a simple eye contact can be. I feel so much gratitude for have been a part of such wonderful, interesting and loving group of people.
Officially, I am a 200 hour Certified Hatha Yoga Teacher, but I am not quite ready to teach yet. I have decided to attend a couple more trainings in the upcoming months and practice, practice. Stay tuned… Check out a few pics from my journey!
